Venue Spotlight: USS Yorktown

Embark on an adventure to Patriots Point, and host a historic event aboard the USS Yorktown. With unmatched views of the harbor and Charleston’s steeple-dotted skyline, and 42,000 tons of steel underfoot, this unique venue is an unforgettable event location.

Commissioned on April 15, 1943, the USS Yorktown (CV-10) was the tenth aircraft carrier to serve in the United States Navy. After earning battle stars in World War II, Vietnam War, and many other missions, the carrier was decommissioned in 1970, and then transferred to Charleston to become the centerpiece of Patriots Point Naval & Maritime Museum.

Available for events year round, the USS Yorktown has scalable venues to host groups of any size. Coupled with state-of-the-art technology and flexible meeting spaces, this historic site creates a dynamic experience. Aboard the ship, guests can mix and mingle throughout the exhibitions, like the coveted Medal of Honor Museum, while taking in the Charleston skyline from the flight deck and hanger. From M.A.S.H and U.S.O themes to patriotic dinners, Belmond Charleston Place Meetings & Events Team has planned it all. Our tenured staff will choose décor that impresses and menus that delight even the pickiest eaters. From the first phone call to final clean-up, we’ll execute every detail to perfection.
